P2 Science Launches Innovative Line of Performance Cosmetics Fluids
CitroVisc™ is a new line of bio-based performance cosmetics fluids providing a range of viscosities
Woodbridge, CT – February 1st, 2021. P2 Science, Inc. (P2), a green chemistry company, today announced the launch of a brand new, bioderived and patented line of high-performance cosmetics fluids. The new line, trademarked CitroVisc™, is built on the proprietary Citropol® platform. As such, CitroVisc products are derived from upgraded forestry by-products from Forest Stewardship Council certified pine trees. The CitroVisc line will include fluids with viscosities ranging from 1,000 cPs to 10,000 cPs.
Commercial production of the first product in the line, CitroVisc 1000, a 1,000 cPs fluid, has started at P2’s state-of-the-art green chemistry manufacturing facility in Naugatuck, CT. Samples and product literature are available now at the company’s website, and CitroVisc 1000 can be purchased directly on the company’s e-store – also on the website.
“This CitroVisc line is a long-awaited set of ingredients which gives formulators access to a full range of fluids of various viscosities. The products will find immediate application as alternatives to silicones of various viscosities and as novel formulation building blocks in and of themselves,” said Neil Burns, CEO of P2. “The development and commercialization of this line took place in record time due to the incredible efforts of our technology and applications teams in response to very strong customer interest.”
“Our customers have been looking and asking for a plant-based alternative to medium-high viscosity silicone oils. We believe this product will meet their needs and enable new sustainable product innovations,” said Ryan Cheng, VP Business Development at P2.
The Citrovisc 1000 launch represents the 9th green-chemistry based product to be commercialized by P2 since April of this last year. The CitroVisc product line, along with Citropol and Citrolatum products, will also fall under P2’s Plant a Forest initiative, where P2 plants a tree for every kilogram of product sold to its customers.
